The letter has nothing at all to do with the "Israel Lobby"
Opponents of Israel often deny that they are anti-semites. And of course the relationship between Jews and Israel is complex. But here we have a Jewish organization (B'Nai Brith), whose mandate is to represent the interests of Jews in Canada, expressing concern about a professor who is refusing to honor the holiest days in the Jewish Calendar. Seems to me that they (B'nai Brith) are doing their job. Mr. Noble FOI's this article, which, according to your description, is "illustrating how the Israel lobby in Canada uses its influence...". A Canadian Jewish organization, writing about a religious matter of concern is "the Israel lobby"? My cat likes kosher chicken liver. Is she an agent of the powerful Israel lobby? This would be laughable if the consequences of this deep rooted and ingrained anti-semitism were not so damaging,
